The Big New Project

I've been trying to figure out what on earth this blog was going to relate to? What's my purpose here? What's my topic? Then late the other night I had a thought on a new project. Is it a good thought? Well, I couldn't tell you that-- but here's the plan none the less...

Reclaiming my childhood.

I think it's a safe assumption that any adult has had their share of the "I wish I could have done that as a kid" syndrome. It doesn't matter weather it was a happy or regretful childhood, there's something we all would have like to have done (or at the very least, do again.)

I always heard that when you have children of your own that it gives you the chance to be a kid again. Well among my pleasant memories of years gone past I've come to realize there are quite a few things I missed out on. So, in the words of a Snickers candy bar... "why wait?"

I've set out, after the inspiration from a friend, to be a kid again... or rather, maybe for the first time. My objective is pretty simple. I'll be seeking of those fun things I never got to do as a child and will blog about my experiences. Anything from crafts out of clay to visits to the zoo. I'll do a little retrospective blogging about some holidays traditions I was blessed to participate in the past few years as well.

Do you have a favorite childhood memory you'd like to share? Something you did as a family that should make my "must do" list? Let me know! :) So, here on this day the journey begins.

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away there lived a girl....


  1. I think this is brilliant! My suggestions:

    Fingerpaint mixed with shaving cream to make pictures- either on the table or on paper works well- Donna used to do this in OT when she was little...and all 4 of us would get involved:)

    Leaf rubbings with crayons...

    Jump rope...

    That's all I've got right now- have fun my friend:)

  2. Thanks Adele! I'm going to have to start getting some pictures up. Thanks for the suggestions as well-- I actually had been debating about the jump rope and I love the other two ideas! :)
